2nd Set Excellence
I attended this show on my 18th bday weekend. Owsley was in the house, figuratively... The first set had fish rising up like birds, the crowds community mind was forming itself, so things were really kicking into gear by the end of the set. After the group mind settled in during halftime, we were greeted with the "new stuff" that had been in the works for a series of shows on the east coast. "Throwing Stones" into "Touch of Grey" set the clear and articulate state of mind the band was in. Clicking on all cylinders leading into a spooky and deep "Estimated" with amazing improvisation by Jerry throughout backed by the bands keen intuition as they worked through many strange and well thought out passages leading into a very crisp "Eyes". Jerry's guitar tone is at it's very purest during this entire four song segment. The drums take over the reins and go deep and shchi payed, great stereo separation between the respective sides of the beast. This leading into true psychedelic free form with chants, bird whistles and Jerry's working in his classic mood driven scale work with Bob and Phil jumping on board for a very dissonant and beautifully dark space. A nothing short of mental telepathy guitars/keys jam finds it's way into tight truckin, continuing directly into probably one the most cohesively balls out "other one" with Jerry on roto-pan from the once side of the main columns until it reaches a completely circular motion around the spectrum of the sound system (Healy!). Of course this all winds down into yes, one of the greatest "Dews" from the era. Wrap it all up with a "Saturday Night" and "US Blues" encore, and there folks you have a very classic and amazing dead show. I like this 2nd set from head to end in a nice set of "head" phones. one for the ages. I've probably listened to it thousands of times. Hope you appreciate and enjoy it too. :-)

Don't skip over this one!
Absolutely one of best of 1982. Perfect sound as well.

'82 is very hit and miss for me. This one is definitely a hit.
Excellent, energetic first set with a superb TLEO and West LA in which Jerry channels Dylan.
The second set is also great but looks a bit better on paper. Nicely paced Eyes and a gorgeous Morning Dew. Bobby starts to sound like his voice is straining but he manages to power through.
As for the sound, as CM says "This is an upgrade to all previous SBD sources" and it is. There's no shortage of copies of this performance and the CM board sounded best on my speakers. There is also a good matrix available on IA.
